Opened in 1995 to house the School of Social Work, the Tate-Turner-Kuralt Building is named for three different people. Jack Tate was an early supporter of the school and was effective in gaining state support for teaching social work at Carolina. John Turner had a long career in social work, was hired as Kenan Professor in 1974, and became the first African American dean at Carolina in 1981. And journalist Charles Kuralt, whose father was a social worker in Charlotte, was a longtime supporter of the school. The new building enabled the social work programs at UNC to operate in the same location for the first time since the founding of the school in 1920.
